Mission, Vision, and Values

Under the Local Health Systems Integration Act, 2006 and the Ministry-LHIN Performance Agreement, Local Health Integration Networks are required to publish a three-year strategic plan, our Integrated Health Service Plan. This Plan represents the commitment of the LHIN and 77 health service providers to the communities we serve. It is developed based on extensive input from and engagement with health service providers and other stakeholders, and is approved by government.

LHINs are also required to produce Annual Business Plans, that include the key initiatives that will be undertaken in the current year. This 12-month plan outlines the specific initiatives that networks and councils across the health system identified as necessary to achieve results for our residents. The initiatives reflect the outcomes of extensive engagement with residents, health service providers, and other stakeholders as well as provincial commitments. The document that was submitted to government for approval also contained additional information related to the WWLHIN and its operations.

Specific targets and their status are published and updated regularly in Performance Dashboards. Data is often published for both the community and health service provider level, allowing Boards of our health service providers to monitor progress, ensure appropriate interventions where improvements are necessary, and celebrate successes along the way. We welcome feedback on the information provided so that we can continue to improve alignment and engagement in achieving system improvements for local residents.

Our RESIDENTS and FAMILIES are at the heart of our strategy to improve access, service and quality within our local health care system.
